Embodying (and not) the principles of emergent strategy

Embodying (and not) the principles of emergent strategy

Earlier this month, I had the good fortune to participate in a 4-day Emergent Strategy Ideation Institute in my home town of Washington, DC.  I’m still making meaning of the experience (including in this blog post) and wanted to share it in order to encourage others to check out adrienne maree brown’s wonderful book Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds and to consider applying for future Ideation Institute sessions taking place in other cities.

What the heck is emergent strategy?

Earlier this month, I had the good fortune to participate in a 4-day Emergent Strategy Ideation Institute in my home town of Washington, DC.  In this blog post, I’m sharing some of the basics of emergent strategy, and in another post I make meaning of my experience at the Institute in DC. I wanted to share these in order to encourage others to check out adrienne maree brown’s wonderful book Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds and to consider applying for future Ideation Institute sessions taking place in other cities (I know there will be sessions in Durham, NC, Detroit, MI, and Oakland, CA before the end of the year).

Good Reads, Listens & Views from Q2 of 2019

Good Reads, Listens & Views from Q2 of 2019

One of the things we love to do, and is a core part of our practice at Optimistic Anthropology, is connecting people to resources they might not (yet) be aware of that will help them think about and do the work of positive and equitable social change.

In that spirit, we occasionally like to share some good reads, listens, views and more on the blog on topics relevant to our work and philosophy. Here is a round up from the Q2 of 2019.
